The Ghorkodada statue, 22 meters high and six meters wide, is in an area 40 km from the provincial capital city of Ardebil at the top of a 100-meter high hill.

Residents of Anbaran village call the statue 'baba davood' and entertain the belief that a shrine, built in the area surrounding the statue, has been destroyed with the lapse of time.

The stone statue, situated on the bank of a river overlooking anbaran village, is very similar to the statue of sphinx in Egypt.

Some peoples have stood on the heads of these statues:
